Lift the Chassis into the Rack

Lifting the chassis and mounting it in a rack requires three people. The empty chassis weighs approximately 150 lb (60.4 kg).

  1. Ensure the rack is in its permanent location and is secured to the building.
  2. Position the chassis in front of the rack or cabinet, centering it in front of the mounting shelf. Use a pallet jack if one is available.
  3. With one person on each side and one person in the front, hold onto the bottom of the chassis and carefully lift it onto the large and small (if installed) mounting shelves.
  4. Slide the chassis onto the mounting shelves until the mounting brackets or front-mounting flanges contact the rack rails. The shelves ensure that the holes in the mounting brackets and the front-mounting flanges of the chassis align with the holes in the rack rails.
  5. To install the chassis in an open-frame rack, install a mounting screw into each of the open mounting holes aligned with the rack, starting from the bottom.
  6. Visually inspect the alignment of the chassis. If the chassis is installed properly in the rack, all the mounting screws on one side of the rack should be aligned with the mounting screws on the opposite side and the chassis should be level.
